The name says it all, this is a t-shirt with a built in digital clock and stopwatch. Great for concerts, parties and at work. It will definitely draw the attention of all the people around you, but just don’t let them start treating you like a clock… 😉

The t-shirt is made from 100% cotton; it has a fully functional EL (Electro Luminenscence) panel with a battery pack that snuggles discretely into a pocket inside the shirt.

The price of the The Show Off Clock T-shirt is $72.

If you can’t wait to get your hands on one of those…


Launchy is the most efficient way to open files, folders, and programs on your computer. Nobody likes to hunt through the start menu to find an application, just to find that the application is hidden under some obscure folder named after a company you have never heard of! Instead, Launchy is a smart search program which tries to guess which program or file you are looking for and will launch it when you hit the enter key. It is only visible when you hit the ALT + SPACE key combination; otherwise it hides in the background. Once you have used it for a few days, it becomes an indispensable utility for your computer. And it’s free!


How to use Launchy
Launchy installs itself into your Startup folder (it’s buried in your start menu) and will automatically run every time you log into your computer. Yet, where is it? Launchy hides in the background until you need it. To bring it to the foreground type ALT + SPACE (hold down the alt key and tap the space bar). At this point simply begin typing the name of the program you are looking for. Do not worry about capitalization, punctuation, or even spelling in general.

Adding Directories and Types
If you would like Launchy to index more than the programs in your start menu, such as folders, mp3s, docs, pdfs, avis, etc… then this option is for you. Right click on Launchy, select directories, and then add the file types to search for on the right and the directories to search for them in on the left. Note that the types should be of the form .mp3 and .exe and not *.exe or anything else. If you would like to open folder windows directly from Launchy, check the Index Directory Names box.

Skins Support
It is also possible to change the default skin of Launchy, you have a choice of 12 other skins by default and you can even create your own. To create a skin, look in the Skins directory under your installation directory and one into a new directory. Edit the skin.ini file to your liking and replace the images. The ini files have helpful (though limited) documentation.

Launchy is a free and open source application.

LED Tiles

26, Jul 2006


Straight luminous glass borders in format 5.5 x 40 cm and in the colours blue, yellow and white complete the light concept and are a perfect match with “Flow” and “LED Tiles”.


The luminous borders make every room an eye-catcher – in your private oasis of wellness as well as in an object area. The borders are used in various applications such as indirect lighting, innovative skirting and guide at steps or just as an exclusive design element. Combined with white tiles of sizes 30 x 40 cm or 40 x 70 cm, they create purist cool worlds of living. Combined with the series of mosaic floor and wall tiles from Steuler, the borders allow most different and varying design worlds to be created – for every demand and taste.


LED illuminated borders trace bands of light on walls and floors. They lend structure to the architecture and show the way. Colours such as white and blue set the stage for rooms and bathe the soul. Single coloured or with slowly alternating colours, the LED modules delicately illuminate steps and stairs or emphasis niches and individual objects. The light playfully speckles colour accents on walls and floors – soft yet stimulating. The possibilities are limitless…

The price of the tiles needed for 1 square meter starts at about $50 + about $100-150 for the control electronics.
